Are you feeling anxious or distressed? Perhaps feeling sad or as if you have lost your way? You may be going through a big change in your life such as a relationship breakdown or a bereavement. Talking to someone can help.
I offer a safe and confidential space where you can talk about what is troubling you. I will listen without judgement or ridicule, and help you to bring a deeper understanding to what is concerning you. Together, we can work to explore why you feel as you do, to help find your own solutions to coping better with what you are facing or to break free of patterns that might be limiting you in living life to the full.
I am a counsellor based in the North of Cambridge. I work from a quiet room in Waterbeach village with good parking and which is accessible by road and rail services from Ely and central /North Cambridge.
During this period of the Coronavirus pandemic I am working virtually via Skype/Zoom or on the phone.
I welcome any questions that you may have. Please feel free to contact me.
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied at the Institute of Psychosynthesis and hold an MA in Psychosynthesis Psychology (validated by Middlesex University) and a diploma in counselling. I am a registered member of BACP.
I trained as a counsellor after many years of experience in education where I worked as a teacher, senior leader and lecturer in a range of educational settings. I currently work as a counsellor in a local charitable organisation as well as having a small private practice.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
